Seasonal Allergies

The summer season is coming to an end and that means that fall allergies are quickly approaching. In order to better enjoy the fall season it’s important to prepare your home for the seasonal change. Keep in mind that throughout the summer months dust and other inconveniences have a tendency to collect in your home.

How do you prepare your home for the change of seasons?

  • Air filters: We always suggest changing out your filters with each changing season, sometimes even more frequently depending on your location and how often you run your system.
  • Duct Cleaning: Throughout each season dust collects in your ductwork causing poor indoor air quality. During the summer months pollen has a tendency to collect in your ducts making your summer allergies continue throughout the fall months as well. It’s important to get your ducts cleaned following the summer in order to improve your homes indoor air quality.
  • Ventilation: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) suggests ventilating your home properly. If the fans used in your kitchen and bathrooms do not vent outside, this move is an excellent place to start. Opening windows when the weather is nice will also allow fresh air in and to help push pollutants out.

Seasonal Allergies

The fall season may be enjoyable for some, but for others allergies are at an all time high. For those living in Indiana, with each season change comes severe allergies. Ragweed, pollen and mold fill the air and lead to horrible itchy eyes and runny noses, which in turn cause exhaustion and difficulty sleeping. There are several ways to fight air contaminants that go far beyond avoiding the outdoors and dusting and vacuuming on a daily basis. It’s time to put your Swiffer and starting breathing normally again! (Insert sigh of relief here)

The best way to reduce the impact of seasonal allergies is to make sure your HVAC system is in the best condition possible. This includes the filters, the cleanliness of the ducts, and the amount you run your system.  Having your system checked and cleaned on an annual basis can help tremendously for those suffering from severe allergies. Even those who don’t suffer from allergies can benefit for a thorough cleaning!
